To compose an exceptionally bad opening sentence for any piece of writing (not limited to novels...but not including blog posts) and to include a photograph or brief description of some aspect of that sentence.
How hard can that be, right?
So here goes:
Stephanie Saunders walked out of her front door to begin a long, exciting day that ended suddenly as she was run over by a bus, killing her instantly.
Right about now you're going "HOW DARE YOU MENTION THE MAIN CHARACTER'S FATE IN THE FIRST SENTENCE? DOESN'T THAT KILL THE POINT OF READING THE BOOK? AND WHY AM I SCREAMING?"
It's then that I show you this:
A red herring
Because Stephanie Saunders has absolutely nothing to do with the story.
